  • This is an International Cricket Stadium. The pride of Kanpur. Many sports activities are conducted here. Needs to be properly maintained.
  • A very good ground for international cricket, but all the stands are not provided with proper seating arrangements and sheds which is really required during rains or scorching summer. Water and food facility are also not very good. You will not get packaged mineral drinking water even after paying twice the money. Ambience during the international tournaments is really good.
